Tonight it was just the two of us for dinner -- me and Lawman. I got home later than usual, it was Friday night and I did NOT want to spend much time in the kitchen preparing dinner. Quick & easy is what I had in mind. Plus, Lawman was hungry and he didn't want to have to wait very long.
Last weekend I spent some time organizing my loose recipes and while doing that I came across one for Salmon Stew that I got from a vegetarian friend of mine. 3 years ago. I had yet to try it. I made a comment about it and Lawman thought it sounded good. Turns out I had everything for it in the pantry and it was a grown-up meal; one I knew the girls wouldn't be all that particularly fond of.
After making it tonight, I'm sorry I hadn't tried it sooner. Not only is it tasty, it hit the spot on this cold winter night (current temp is -6...brrr), and it was ready to eat in 15 minutes. Yes, just 15 minutes from start to finish.
1-15 oz can stewed tomatoes (I used garlic & onion seasoned ones)
1 can whole kernel corn w/liquid
1-7oz can salmon, drained
1-5oz can evaporated milk + 1 can water
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. dill (I used about 3/4 tsp.)
Combined tomatoes, corn and salmon in a sauce pan and heat until warm. Add milk, water and seasonings. Heat through; do not boil. Serve with cornbread or crackers.
